I am thinking of redoing my kitchen with a fossil backsplash, what should I do first?
We encourage you to look through our collection of past projects for something of interest. If you see something let us know. We can provide details on the project, ballpark pricing, and time frames.
Do you have fossils other than fish?
We do from time to time find fossils other than fish. We find plants and other aquatic animals like stingrays, turtles, and crocodiles. These are rare finds and are in most cases cost prohibitive for use in a backsplash.
Will you help me design my backsplash?
Absolutely, we are happy to offer our suggestions. If possible, send us your kitchen layout & backsplash dimensions and give us an idea of what you are looking for. Photos of the kitchen are also helpful. This makes it much easier for us to help you coordinate all the different elements and come up with a design that is unique to you and your kitchen.
How can I get an idea of what my backsplash will look like?
We can provide you with detailed design studies showing tile sizes, fossil types and fossil locations via jpeg and PDF files. We can also provide cut off samples of the stone for exact color matching and texture options.
How do I install the backsplash?
When the project is complete at our end, we are providing cut, finished, sealed stone, ready to install. In some cases GRSC will install the backsplash but for most projects we will work with your local installer to provide details on the best techniques and materials for working with our stone. We are always available to answer questions.
How does the backsplash ship?
GRSC has been shipping fossil stone internationally for over 15 years. We take great pride in making sure the stone arrives on time and in good condition. Your project will ship in custom built wooden crates, fully insured against loss or damage.
How do I care for a fossil stone backsplash?
Like all natural stone products fossil stone backsplashes will require some level of care. We provide the stone with two factory coatings of a penetrating sealer designed to protect it from stains. Still we recommend that you try and avoid grease and other staining materials from landing on the stone. Should they get on the stone, we recommend they be removed quickly using a soft cloth and a mild soap. Natural Cleft stone has more texture and may require periodic cleaning. This is an easy process. Once sealed these stones are easy to clean.
